Cambridge Spies (BBC-2 2003, Toby Stephens, Tom Hallander)

Published

on

Cambridge Spies told the story of Britain’s most infamous double agents, Philby, Burgess, Blunt and Maclean. Starting in the 1930s when they were recruited during their Cambridge university days by the soviets and following them as they wormed their way into the British establishment.

Cambridge Spies is supremely well made and cast. Story wise it sticks to all the known facts about the infamous trio and adds a few extra in for good measure.
